I just don’t know what else to say but that by each passing day, the Barisan Nasional’s credibility to rule over this country is simply disappearing bit by bit like the trickling grains of sand fast gathering at the bottom of the political heap that the present ruling coalition is turning out to be!
I think that the Malaysian public have been robbed of proper government for way too long and been made victim of reckless political breach of trusts by the BN engaging in lowdown dirty political tactics in their attempts to deny the public alternative choices in getting better representation in the corridors of power in Putrajaya?
Despite the mountains of corruption cases piling up in the clearly biased and one sided judicial system, we still see corrupt politicians and industrialists who have connections with past and present top leadership in the ruling coalition yet to be prosecuted and taken action against them in the truest sense of the word?
Just when we were about to witness the re-entry of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim into the mainstream politics of this nation after being victimized by the then Prime Minister in 1998 and subsequently incarcerated for 6 long years under charges which were found to be baseless and he was released after the courts found him innocent roughly a year after Abdullah Badawi took over power form Mahathir, the nation has again been shocked to wake up to the second season of the character assassination of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim using the same old sodomy tactic!
This time around, Anwar’s political foes have resorted to using an ambitious young Malay chap who ‘volunteered’ to be Anwar’s aide just prior to the 12th Malaysian General Elections in March 2008 earlier this year which saw the Pakatan Rakyat defeat the BN in 5 Peninsular states and forming the new state governments in Penang, Kedah, Perak, Selangor and retaining Kelantan.
Just as Anwar was about to announce his candidacy in the Bandar Tun Razak Parliamentary By Election within this week, this male aide who is said to be a BN mole, surfaced with a sodomy charge against the man whom many Malaysians are rooting for to be the next Malaysian Prime Minister and end the BN’s 5 decades of political monopoly since this nation achieved independence from Britain in 1957.
Having learned from his 1998 bitter experience in not taking things for granted, Anwar sensed that his life is now in grave danger of being assassinated not only in character but actually being snuffed out, he took no chances and sought refuge at the Turkish Embassy here in the nation’s capital.
Knowing just what the Malaysian Police are capable of including just blindly following orders from their chiefs who usually will just offer ‘menurut arahan’ as an excuse and just smash down Anwar’s home doors and windows to bundle him off again in the deep of the night and possibly some ‘accident’ might take place and all anyone would say is,” Oops! We are absolutely sorry!”
So I don’t blame Anwar for being extra cautious and edgy this time around!
Who wouldn’t be?
Not with all these brutalities we see that the Malaysian Police Force are capable of and have actually unleashed upon the Malaysian people!!!
This blatant attempt to screw Anwar once again using the same old sodomy fabrication is just a sign of the desperate measures that his detractors are forced to use further exposing their downright low levels of political warfare.
They will resort to just anything that they can to undermine his chances of making a political comeback and the gloves are off literally so to speak?
I am sure that this latest attack on Anwar’s character and reputation is certainly not going to be the last and looking at the way this nation is witnessing the incumbents who seem to be going all out to ensure that they remain glued to the seats of power over there in Putrajaya, they are definitely not going to go quietly into the night or give up easily without drawing blood.
The BN certainly have lost their credibility to remain in power for as each day goes by, the life’s of the Malaysian people are proven to be not improving in any way?
We are facing economic hardships at a level that is seeing the spiraling of crime as a result of dire financial consequences to many folks due to the highest fuel price hikes by the current BN Federal Government under Abdullah Badawi, the most hated BN Prime Minister of all time.
I can keep going on and on writing about the way most Malaysians are pissed off with the current government and generally people are just quite fed up with all the cock and bull excuses being spewed by Abdullah and Najib who are both hated so much for their mismanagement of this country’s resources and further causing so much grievances to the hearts and minds of the Malaysian public save for their apple polishers and diehard dimwit supporters.
Anwar needs to be given a chance to stand for elections and guaranteed safe passage failing which the BN will just have a political backlash coming at them and wash them out from the seats of power which they have been enjoying for far too long!
Regardless if they succeed in killing off Anwar or any other Pakatan Rakyat leader either politically or in the actual sense of the word, the BN’s days in power are now being numbered and the inevitable will just take place no matter as to who is left standing in the current political turmoil taking place in this nation?
Looks like Reformasi # 2 is coming into season again and this time around, the Malaysian people would know better as to how to go about it?
At stake is their future and the future of their children, who are all going to be in worse off situations if the citizens of this country do not stand up and claim their birthrights to have a better government, by the people, for the people and of the people!
If we are to see a better nation come out from this political spring cleaning, each of us better be prepared to speak up and make our voices and opinions heard failing which just shrivel away and die as those who had a chance to change their future but blew it due to self centered agendas and failure to heed the clarion call for reform.
“The people to fear are not those who disagree with you but those who disagree with you and are too cowardly to let you know.” Napoleon Bonaparte.
Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has returned to his home from the Turkish Embassy after receiving assurances of his personal safety from the Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar and Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Rais Yatim and Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak this evening.
What is going to happen next is going to be a showcase of the state of affairs we have in this nation where the BN is on the brink of collapsing forever from lack of popular support of the Malaysian grassroots who are just waking up to the reality that if anything is to be, it is up to just each and every concerned citizen, regardless of his or her color or creed?
I would like to end this article with a quote from Kahlil Gibran:
The butterfly that hovers around the lamp until it dies
is more admirable
than the mole that lives in the dark tunnel.
Nothing is going to change until you and I do what we need within our own limited capabilities no matter what obstacles we are going to face or die trying!

20. Know ye (all), that the life of this world is but play and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting and multiplying, (in rivalry) among yourselves, riches and children.
Here is a similitude: How rain and the growth which it brings forth, delight (the hearts of) the tillers; soon it withers; thou wilt see it grow yellow; then it becomes dry and crumbles away.
But in the Hereafter is a Penalty severe (for the devotees of wrong). And Forgiveness from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure (for the devotees of Allah.. And what is the life of this world, but goods and chattels of deception?
